Meet Crystal Mullins, a 22-year-old CURVY Cutie from Detroit Michigan.
I want to be an inspiration to curvy girls everywhere. I’ve struggled with my weight all my life. I’ve been “overweight” even though I was a varsity cheerleader in high school and played many years of softball. I always had self-esteem issues even though my pride would not let me show my insecurities to anyone. I was crying inside. I’ve always been the big girl with a pretty face. I would smile and say thank you when people would come up to me and say,”you have such a pretty face” but in my mind I was screaming why can’t you just say I’m beautiful, all of me not just my face.
I was casted for Walk fashion show Lansing April of 2013 and the feedback I received was absolutely breathtaking. I had woman of all shapes come up to me and say what an inspiration I was. It brought tears to my eyes. Hearing the crowd roar as I stepped out on that runway praying that I wouldn’t fall in my 5 inch heels I strutted my stuff like I was the most beautiful person in the world. Now I’m part of the Curvy Revolution.
I love my curves because they make me feel powerful and sexy. My curves make me feel beautiful and remind me how hard I’ve worked to get where I am today. Some might say that I’m “fat” or overweight but I now have enough self-esteem to smile and say “No, I’m curvy and if you can’t handle that well then I’m to much of a woman for you.”
